My darlings Wanda & Helen. I hope you are having a delightful time gathering health & knowledge & love of the beautiful world of our Father I told you in a letter from Merced how grand a time I had with the President camping out every night in perfect
solitude. He is the most interesting man I ever had in the mountains He has kindly given me four personal letters to our ambassadors, military & naval officers etc [requesting?] them to and [Sargent?] & me in every way possible. So our ways are made smooth as far as the President can make them.
I arrived in Boston the 23, we sail on the 29th. Hope to see Harriman, Johnson, Gilder & Robin Hood.
How beautiful Hetch Hetchy must be. Take no risks of dangerous fords or crumbling
